Description Regina Henschel 2007-05-26 12:54:52 UTC
In report design insert an image via Einfügen > Bild > Aus Datei.
In that dialog the option "Verknüpfen" is disabled. The inserted Picture is
always linked.
That is uncomfortable if you want to move your database document. All other
parts of the database, especially the forms and reports, are included but you
have no choice to include the picture.

Worse thing in that dialog is, that the disabled option "Verknüpfen" doesn't
show a mark. Therefore the user thinks, that images are embedded by default.

Comment 3 Frank Schönheit 2007-05-29 19:37:10 UTC
The Report Designer iTeam decided that this is no show stopper for the first
release, and no "should be fixed if possible at all". targeting to "not
determined" for the moment.
Comment 4 Frank Schönheit 2007-05-29 19:58:34 UTC
submitted issue 77905 to *somewhat* relax the situation. A full-blown concept
for linking/embedding images is out of reach for 2.3, sorry.
Comment 5 Frank Schönheit 2007-05-29 20:03:40 UTC
a full concept could probably be described along those lines:
- By default, graphics are linked.
- Though, the user is able to decide (at insertion time) that a graphic should not
  be linked, but embedded. In this case, the graphic is really embedded into
  the report document (which is embedded in the database document)
- For an embedded graphic, the property "Preserve as Link" is not available (or
- The "Edit Links" dialog is available per menu item "Edit / Links ...", as
known from
  the other applications. It allows to change linked graphics to embedded graphics.
Comment 6 marc.neumann 2007-09-10 13:25:03 UTC
The Report Designer iTeam decided to retargeting this issue to 2.4.
Comment 7 ocke.janssen 2007-10-31 07:59:25 UTC
We change that to 3.x. There are more things needed as expected before.

My fault. I thought it was a similar to issue 88733.
